I can’t believe that Piglet is 4 months old today! I can’t believe that tomorrow I will be 30! I will finally be as old as I’ve felt for the last few years. In some ways I feel it. In other ways I feel like a kid just playing house. Sometimes I can’t believe I’m an adult. Even with all the work and responsibilities that come with growing up, I love it. I think I’m entering into the best years of my life, and I am welcoming this new decade with open arms.
Tomorrow will be the first time I leave Piglet with a babysitter. It’s only for 2 hours, with my church friend and neighbor, but still. It’s the first time he’s been alone with someone other than me or Match, or my mom (for all of 20 min). I’m nervous but I’m excited! Geeky is coming to town and we are going out to lunch. 2 hours where I can eat, and have use of both hands. Where I don’t have to breastfeeding while eating with one hand, and attempting not to drop food on the baby. I’m going to do my best to keep it together and not wig out while I’m away from him. It will be so good for Piglet, and it will be good for me to miss him, and to learn to let go a little.
Match has to work tomorrow, so we are celebrating my birthday later. He’s got some pretty exciting career stuff in the works, and he’s taking the next 2 weeks off! The inlaws are coming over towards the end of the month and we are going on our date night. There might also be a trip to Monterey in the mix and definitely a family trip to the zoo.
Oh, but this is supposed to be a 4 month update about Piglet. I got a little side tracked there.
So to my dear son: we are having so much fun with you little man. Your squeals of delight and giggles just melt our hearts. I love that when I go to get you out of your crib in the morning, you always greet me with the biggest smile. You’re always so happy, and your smiles are infectious. Wherever we go, people stop to comment on how cute you are, and how happy. You have full head control now, and you’re so close to sitting up on your own. You try crawling, even though it’s more of a face plant scoot. Pretty funny to watch, but you get so frustrated that you’re not mobile yet. You are just like me, always in a hurry to grow up. Slow down, enjoy every stage. I know I am enjoying every moment with you. You are the best birthday gift I could ever receive!
